    These guys are just going to have a party when they are released, get debriefed and go right back into the field. This whole plan is going to be a failure.

    I say go for it. Send an invite to all the Talibani for a BBQ party at the Qatar office and then nuke the place.

    The IRA eventually became legit. It's a great way to get militants to become more responsible. Give them stuff to do. Governing is a heck of a lot harder then complaining.

    Although, when they were governing..they were pretty lousy at it. But at least they kiboshed the Heroin trade in Afghanistan.

    Especially since there's nothing to "win"..unless the intent is to colonize Afghanistan.

    Best we can hope for is a brutal dictator to keep them quiet. :D
